Bubba Kush Strain Genetics
The heritage of this indica hybrid is somewhat of a mystery. Since the cross-pollination of an OG Kush and an unknown New Orleans indica in 1996, this Kush has gone by the name ‘Bubba’, after its breeder. Not much else is known about the hazy past of this now popular strain.
Bubba Kush Strain Terpene Profile
The aroma and flavor of Bubba Kush is best described as a combination of coffee and dark chocolate with a nutty undertone. It also carries the typical, slightly hashish-like sweet, earthy pine forest palette familiar in the Kush genetics.
Bubba Kush Strain Effects
Bubba Kush’s effects are typical of an almost 100% indica. Muscle relaxing sensations take over the body causing the eyes to droop. Meanwhile, thoughts slow and a sleepiness takes hold. Consumers often describe these deeply calming effects as therapeutic.
Bubba Kush’s medium-high THC level of 18% should prevent this heavy body-stoned from becoming overwhelming. Although the less experienced may prefer something slightly lighter.
Medical Benefits Bubba Kush Strain
This almost pure indica strain is famous for its medicinal properties. It has been known to help with nausea, loss of appetite and muscle fatigue. The strain also seems to work well for pain relief, full body relaxation, and mental tranquility. Due to its sedating effect, Bubba Kush appears to be especially well-suited to combat insomnia and stress-related symptoms.
How to Grow Bubba Kush Seeds
Bubba Kush grows well in any environment but gives the best result when using hydroponics indoors. Screen- and Sea of Green methods also work well with this strain.
Bubba Kush is very resistant to molds and pests, so it’s an ideal strain for beginners. Just watch out for extreme temperature fluctuations, since the plant is susceptible to heat stress.
